When our contributor, Esther Honig, asked graphic artists at 25 countries to “make me beautiful,” she didn’t expect her cross-cultural examination of beauty to go viral.

Using Photoshop, the artists all manipulated Honig’s raw image to their country’s ideal. (See a slideshow.)  

Picked up by BuzzFeed and other media outlets, people around the world are amazed to see how beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.

We want to know: How would you “make me beautiful?” How would you change her raw photo?

Grab Photoshop or any other photo-editing software and send us your edited versions.

Tweet your photos to @KCUR or email them here.  Tune into our daily talk show, Central Standard, at 10 a.m. Monday to hear our interview with Honig.

We’ll share your best photos online later in the week. Happy Photoshopping.
